Why Umusepela Crown & Umusepela Chile Sound Similar

Most Zambians come across Umusepela Chile or Crown first and then later stumble upon the other and wonder, “Why do they sound so similar?”


Yes, their names are similar too. They’re actually supposed to be a music duo. Ironically, they haven’t put out enough music together to validate that they’re a duo. So most people just think of them as two artists who copied each other’s name and style, depending on who the person heard first. 


It’s quite an awkward situation. Because now they don’t even belong to the same record label. And judging by how long they’ve gone without even featuring each other on their songs, we can only expect the trend to continue of them not putting out music as a duo. 


Their last song “Nindubana” dropped in 2018 and was released under the monicker Imisepela Shibili. Since then they’ve worked on their solo careers and have both done amazingly individually.


Which raises questions for the future of the two brands. Will one of them have to evolve into a different style and establish a unique brand? Or will their brands remain intertwined but without them creating music as a duo, like a divorced couple who share children?
